FIDE 100 Years

• About •

In 2024, the International Chess Federation (FIDE) celebrates its centenary anniversary. As part of the celebrations throughout the year, FIDE is planning numerous activities, including chess festivals, exhibitions displaying historical archives, documents and chess memorabilia, tournaments organised all around the world, and many others. The game is just beginning!

• Art Contest •

On July 20, 2024 we attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the most games played within 24 hours. To commemorate this milestone and the Centenary of FIDE, we invite artists to participate in our art contest by creating posters that inspire communities to join us in this remarkable celebration of chess!
